Yea they had discussed the bipolar stuff with the doc, but when I'm not on any meds at all as I am now, I don't have depression at all and have never been manic or overly attentive, irritable, creative ect. So not sure why I would treat something that dosnt exist in the first place. As for the the gabapentin, she said it not me haha, and I noticed from the begining she seemed kind of daft in terms of understanding the science. (Ex: giving the car fluid example for why you have ocd, inferring I'm running low on seritonin and it's that simple.) as for erp, I already do that on my own time but it is not enough, as when exsposing myself to the stimulus and resisting my compulsions, which I do a lot, it causes a lack of motivation and zest for life that I had before(ex: not doing my rituals I then feel like a piece of crap, I don't have any desire to do anything to) . Only residual symptom psychologically I have that I didn't have before is an inanity to pay attention to a certain task, in that I space out or get distracted, and not from my ocd, but from other things. As for the zoloft I know 3 days would do squat, but the effects I had from it made me quit early because I simply couldn't take it. But still not sure what to as ssri make me sad and blue(what they do mentally is make me brush off the thoughts and then I feel like crap similar to erp) antipsychotics as you said do nothing on their own. Really what I would like is to find away to remove some of the extreme inability to have confidence in anything, but most people say that's impossible sadly.
